Venezuela crisis: US aid languishes while Russian bomber touches down 6 months ago   02:32

DW News
Soldiers loyal to Venezuela's sitting President Nicolas Madura are preventing US aid from getting into Venezuela, as every day hundreds of desperate Venezuelans cross the border in search of a better life. More than three million people have already fled, while US aid for Venezuela is held up at the Colombian border. Now the US, which supports self-proclaimed Interim President Juan Guaido, has presented a draft resolution to the UN Security Council calling for a presidential vote. That immediately triggered a counter-proposal from Russia. Moscow supports Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and is likely to use its veto power to block a US resolution.

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!
Maduro is such a crook.. he needs to go for Venezuela to survive.

Now these are real refugees. But its better if maduro got dealt with
If the US invade Venezuela as they did in Syria two
things will happen: (a) there will be widespread civil war that will spill over
to neighboring countries like Colombia etc. (watchout for the spillover) and
(b) there will be massive caravans enroute to the USA. It's going to be the
Syria of Latin America. (Syria in the South) And it is just at our doorsteps…...

Looks like the End Times is getting nearer…and
Nostradamus is right. The 4th and final front is opening up for the Final

Typical example of the astronomical size of Amurrican hypocrisy. The same hypocrisy that makes Washington shed crocodille tears for "those poor Afghan girls that are prevented by the Taliban from going to school and get an education" while sending their own war pilots to the country to flatten schools, hospitals and wedding where many of those same girls could be present. The same delinquents that have subjected for years Venezuela to economic sanctions and to a relentless economic blockade are now the Magdalenas crying because wisely Maduro doesn;t let in a few crumb which may be sharing their crates with weapons sent so their own puppets could start killing Venezuelans and spread chaos and mayhem.

It's interesting how dependant on the U.S. these countries are while also hating American values.
What about if US and EU would lift the sanctions from Venezuela, then no need to provide 'humanitarian aid’ and Maduro would take care of the rest.
